What Is Chainsaw Safety?
Albeit indispensable, the chainsaw presents several inherent dangers that workers must be familiar with prior to operating the tool. For example, a series of forces – including kickback, pull-in, and pushback – can lead to irreparable injuries and even death if not taken into account while the chainsaw is being used. Powerful vibrations, flying debris, and hazards specific to industries where chainsaws are frequently used must be considered with equal concern.
This Chainsaw Safety course focuses on identifying possible chainsaw hazards and assessing risks prior and during use. Employees are taught how to choose the correct personal protective equipment for chainsaw operations, as well as how to respond immediately in case of an accident.
Who Needs Chainsaw Safety Training?
All workers who operate a chainsaw as part of their routine duties should undergo Chainsaw Safety training. The course is geared towards businesses looking to comply with the latest safety regulations at an affordable cost, but can also be acquired individually by existing or potential employees.
Certain industries are more likely to demand the use of a chainsaw. These include:
- Logging & Forestry,
- Automotive & Manufacturing,
Who Is Responsible for Chainsaw Safety Training?
Canadian businesses are under legal obligation to ensure that all of their employees are working in a safe environment. As such, it is the employer’s responsibility to implement Chainsaw Safety training for all workers who may be required to use this power tool in order to complete different tasks.
However, it is the employee who must undergo the safety course, acquire the necessary information, and finally pass an evaluation. What’s more, potential employees who are being considered for a new job can also complete this course individually in order to improve their CVs.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete this safety course, you must understand the anatomy of a chainsaw and the common hazards associated with the use of this power tool. In addition, you must demonstrate your familiarity with PPE requirements specific for chainsaw use, as well as be able to describe safe operation techniques and commonly used protection measures.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Workers who frequently use chainsaws – especially in the logging and forestry industries – should take this course on a yearly basis. Accidents involving this power tool can lead to debilitating or event deadly injuries, which is why employees should stay in touch with the latest safety procedures.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Chainsaw Safety is often paired with Personal Protective Equipment, Fall Arrest, and Lone Worker.
